The software has been thoroughly tested under the most rigorous of operational circumstances and was never once found wanting.

NXPowerLite, the file compression software developed by British company Neuxpower Solutions Ltd, has received NATO accreditation after being successfully deployed by Headquarters Allied Rapid Reaction Corps (HQ ARRC) for a demanding military campaign in Afghanistan.

NXPowerLite radically reduces the size of Microsoft® Word, Excel® and PowerPoint® files in seconds -- with no discernible loss of quality -- making them easier to use, store and share. It achieves this by intelligently compressing the graphics and embedded documents contained within them. Files retain their original format and remain fully editable, so they can be opened and edited by anybody with a copy of Microsoft® Office. The recipient requires no special viewers or plug-ins and the files do not need to be decompressed before opening.

Typically, reports and briefings used in modern digital military HQs include many pictures, maps and graphics that result in file sizes easily exceeding several megabytes. Large files such as these would be difficult or impossible to email or share across the military networks available in Afghanistan, where network and communication capabilities are not to the same high standards enjoyed in Europe and elsewhere in the developed world. HQ ARRC therefore deployed NXPowerLite to help reduce the size of these files.

The usage of NXPowerLite during the nine month campaign was a huge success, to the extent that all staff now routinely optimize their files using NXPowerLite before delivery. Due to the success of NXPowerLite in Afghanistan, NATO accreditation for the usage of the software on all NATO systems has been gained -- thus ensuring its continued use once the ARRC returned to its peacetime location.

"NXPowerLite has proven itself to be a very effective and simple to use tool," commented Paul Jochimsen, Wing Commander RAF, SO1 Information Knowledge Management. "It has contributed to the minimizing of pressure on network overheads; ensuring optimal and rapid passage of information; reducing data backup overheads and as a result, provided a major contribution to increased staff tempo during a very demanding military campaign."

"Our staffs want to produce materials to the highest standard and do not wish to compromise on the quality of work produced. NXPowerLite has provided for us the bridge between the art of the possible and the ultimate user requirement. The software has been thoroughly tested under the most rigorous of operational circumstances and was never once found wanting."

NXPowerLiteTM costs just $45 per user, with discounts available for bulk licensing. It is available to purchase from http://www.nxpowerlite.com and all good software resellers. A fully functional trial version can be downloaded from the website.
